Westborough – Sen. Scott Brown, R, stopped by the Willows at Westborough Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 2 to greet the complex's residents and staff.

Several residents waited for Brown's arrival in the main lobby while others gathered in a meeting room to hear the senator offer brief remarks.

Brown shook hands with the many residents and staff members gathered who were eager to meet him, including a number of war veterans.

“He's one of us,” one resident said. He added that he, like Brown, had served in the Army National Guard.

“I just want to thank him for his service,” the resident added.

Brown also took a brief tour of the complex which is part of the SALMON Health and Retirement company.
